News - Football Manager 2018 Patch 18.0.3 - Hotfix Update for Beta
Sports Interactive have released the second hotfix patch for Football Manager 2018 Beta, the public pre-release version for those who pre-purchased or keep pre-purchasing FM 2018 from our store (or certain other digital retailers).

This update fixes crash issues and other bugs reported by users in FM18 Beta version 18.0.2.

As with the original Early Access Beta, this update contains no Pre-Game or In-Game Editor, the generated player & staff portraits are still disabled and no there's Steam Workshop. These will all be made available on the full release of the game on November 10th.

Released: 31 October 2017

As usual the update is save game compatible, so you don't have to start a new save game for the bug fixes to take effect.

You will need to close down Football Manager 2018 and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated, you will need to restart Steam.
Even if that doesn't do the trick, then verify the game cache will.
